Weekend Preview â€“ Week 18
After a tough and hard fought weekend last time out the Bracknell Bees head into this weekends action looking to get back to winning ways, things however dont’ get any easier.
First they face their local rivals the Slough Jets, in Slough at Absolute Ice on Saturday (6.30pm faceoff) before returning to the Hive on Sunday (6pm) to take on the fourth placed Milton Keynes Lightning.
The Bees and the Slough Jets are currently tied on points in the league table so Saturdays game is not only a local derby but another huge game in the Bees season as they battle for a playoff spot.Â Â The two sides have met twice in Bracknell with the Bees winning both encounters and once in Slough with the Jets having taken the points.Â Â Games between the Bees and the Lightning have also been close affairs later in the season with the last two games decided by just the one goal.Â Â Â The Bees are sure to be looking to getting back to winning ways back this weekend, especially at the Hive in front of their home fans but also on the road in Slough where the Bee’s fans usually travel in their numbers.
The 50/50 raffle and Shirt off a Back raffle both return at Sunday evenings game against the Milton Keynes Lightning and the Player signing table returns post game too.
The Shirt Off a Back raffle is for young Bees defenceman Lewis Turner’s shirt â€“ straight off his back at the end of the game!Â Â The signing table that night will also be manned by Lewis and he will be joined by Bees netminder Alex Mettam and Bees Captain Rob Lamey so make sure you pop along to the family bar, above the home dressing room, after the game.
Donâ€™t forget that the official match night programme has also undergone a bit of a revamp and â€œThe Buzzâ€ will be available again (priced at Â£2.50 and in full colour throughout) â€“ make sure you pick up your copy as the new look is proving popular.
